Untitled[edit]

This article states that Peter Lily was born in Soest (Westphalia, Germany). The German Wikipedia states that he was born in Soest (Utrecht, The Netherlands). So which one is correct? HW

The external links are pretty unanimous that it was Westphalia/Germany, not the Netherlands. The German article does not cite a source, as far as I can see. -- ALoan (Talk) 11:46, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
Ellis Waterhouse (will add to article but not now) : "Though his family was Dutch, he happened to be born at Soest in Westphalia rather than at Soest in Holland" (p62)- but NB lived in Holland when young, so Dutch nationality still correctJohnbod 04:16, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Not like the Germans to..... Johnbod 04:18, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
